Nosing: OrangeVanillaSherryFigHoney

Taste: SherryPeat SmokeLeatherCherry

Finish: a very subtle Peat Smoke , not-too-sweet Caramel , Walnut

Comment: A surprising transition from dominant sherry & fruit on the nose, to a subtle bitterness in its finish.

A very approachable, enjoyable whisky for many levels of of palate sophistication - disentangling the fruit & sweet complexity presents a particularly satisfying challenge.

Taste: PlumBerriesSpicesSweetOakSaltDark Chocolate

Finish: Long

Comment: Strong old oak notes arrive on the nose first, coupled with warm stone fruits and honey. A mild smokey overtone can be found. A warm burst of spices and oak set the base for heather flowers and honey to shine before a dry, bitter dark chocolate finish. There is a minor sherry note found though citrus and stone fruits hold a constant sweetness. A great all rounder dram!

Taste: SweetHerbsOak

Finish: Sweet bitterness

Comment: I really think this is a good whisky! and for someone who is ''new'' to whisky i would recommend this a lot. It have a very deep sweet and rounded taste for me. But i must say i definitely do not get that smoky nose or flavor that the average tasting note would suggest :D
